You can upload custom files to BIG-IP® Access Policy Manager®(APM®) to provide resources directly to users.
Optionally, you can compress and upload multiple files as a single ZIP archive file. When you upload an archive file, you can choose to either upload the compressed file, or upload and extract the compressed file.
Hosted content is any type of file you would like to serve from Access Policy Manager® (APM®) to access policy users. Hosted content can include executable files, scripts, text, HTML, CSS files, and image files. You can serve hosted content from a webtop link, or from a portal access link.
To access hosted content, a user must belong to an access profile that is associated with the hosted content. After content is uploaded to Access Policy Manager® (APM®), the entire hosted content library must be associated with one or more access profiles. These access profiles alone can view the content.
In addition, each file uploaded to the hosted content repository is assigned a permission level that determines the users who can access that content.
A permission level is assigned to each file in the hosted content repository, as described here.
|policy||The file is available only to users who have successfully completed an access policy, with an Allow ending result, and an access profile associated with the hosted content repository. You can assign this to display an HTML file that only a verified user can see.|
|public||The file is available to anyone with an access profile associated with the hosted content repository. You can assign this to allow access to an installation package that a user needs to start an access session.|
|session||The file is available only to users with an active access policy session and an access profile associated with the hosted content repository. You can assign this to allow a user with an active session access to a required logon component.|
To add hosted content to Access Policy Manager®, complete these tasks.
